I love a good infographic ...The other day I saw this lovely post from Brain Pickings. Back in August The Awl published a blog post entitled A Timeline of Future Events - a list of post-historical milestones as featured in some of the most influential literary Science Fiction works.
Italian information designer Giorgia Lupi then created this fabulous piece of informational design (below) for the cultural supplement of Corriere Della Sera - La Lettura. Brain Pickings kindly asked Lupi to create an English version of the chart. If anyone finds this for sale online, I would very much like to find this in my Christmas stocking on the morning of the 25th (click here for hi-res version via Brain Pickings) ...
